1-A-Week: Week 20: A Bowling Ball?

May 26, 2011 by

20 weeks have gone by in my 1AW project, where I am getting rid of at least 1 thing each week that I do not need, want, or use anymore.

And its just awesome.   I now find things laying around and no longer just pass them by or push them farther into a corner to ignore another time, but I am grabbing them and getting them out of my house…and making some cash in the process.

as a sidenote, Lifehacker had a great guide to de-crapyifying your home I recommend checking it out.

This week I noticed a bowling ball.

I don’t bowl, except for the occasional fun night out with friends.  My wife doesn’t bowl, except when I drag her out on said fun night out with friends.

and yet I have a bowling ball.

I don’t remember where I got the bowling ball from, but we got it so our dogs could play with it.  We used to have 2 very large dogs, and now we have one very large dog and one very small dog.

The small dog does not know what to think of it and the big dog  never did care for it.  So it sat in our backyard for who knows how long and now its getting out of our house/yard.

Not sure where this is going yet.  Guess I’ll just donate it to the Good Will unless anyone wants it.

Want a bowling ball?

It says Mr. C on it, which is awesome and does match my last name, but alas… I am not a bowler.


That reminds me that I should plan a fun night out with friends and go bowling soon.

1AW is a project by which I’m getting rid of at least 1 thing each week that I do not need, want, or use anymore.  Doing at least one thing per week helps me reduce the clutter in my life and make room for what is truly important.

All this talk of bowling reminds me that I need to watch The Big Lebowski again.  So awesome.
